I am a parent of a young child who is just starting preschool, and I am considering enrolling him in a bilingual program. However, I'm not sure if it's the right decision for him or not. I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with bilingual education and can explain the benefits it provides for young children.
Specifically, I'm wondering how learning two languages at a young age could positively impact my child's cognitive development, communication skills, and cultural awareness. I also want to know if there are any potential downsides to bilingual education that I should be aware of.
Any insights, advice, or personal stories would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
